Hilton introducing first mobile-controlled hotel rooms


Hilton announced Thursday it will have new high-tech guest rooms at its hotels that can be controlled with a mobile device.

The new Connected Room will allow guests to control lighting, temperature, streaming options and more.

Though in beta form, Connected Room currently is only available at the Hilton Garden Inn in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s expected to be rolled out nationwide at Hilton hotels over the next few years.

ABC7’s Sam Sweeney visited the Hilton Innovative Gallery on Friday to take a firsthand look at the special rooms. The gallery is located next door to Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.
